SOME NATIONAL NETWORKS AND AGENCIES FOR INDUSTRIAL MATHEMATICS IN EUROPE
(The list below is by no means exhaustive)


We are happy to announce the launch of a European Initiative for Industrial Mathematics as a result of a cooperation between EMS and ECMI:

EU-MATHS-IN

France: AMIES (Agence pour les mathématiques en interaction avec l'entreprise et la société).
Germany: KOMSO, the
Komitee für mathematische Modellierung, Simulation und Optimierung.
Hungary: Hungarian Service Network for Mathematics in Industry and Innovations
.
Italy: Sportello matematico per l'industria italiana.
Spain: Math-in, Red española "Matematica-Industria".
The Netherlands: the Committee for Innovation of  the Platform Wiskunde Nederland.

United Kingdom: Industrial Mathematics Knowledge Transfer Network and the Smith Institute for industrial mathematics and systems engineering.




SOME IMPORTANT CENTERS FOR INDUSTRIAL MATHEMATICS IN EUROPE

(The list below is by no means exhaustive)

The European 
Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI) was founded in 1986, by ten European Mathematical Institutes with the intention of offering their collective knowledge and expertise to European industry. Their main goals are to promote the use of mathematical models in industry, to educate Industrial Mathematicians to meet the growing demand for such experts and to operate on a European scale. The centers which participate in ECMI are both industrial and academic departments and are mainly situated in Austria, Denmark, Germay, Ireland, Italy, Norway, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The ECMI website contains many interesting informations about their activities.

In Ireland, MACSI, the Mathematics Consortium for Science and industry, is a network of mathematical modellers and scientific computational analysts.

In Italy, the Milano groups MOX and Miriam/Adamss
, the Firenze Technology trasfert center I2T3 and the Interuniversity Center “Mathematics for Technology” created by Catania and Firenze, in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Techno–und Wirtschaftmathematik (ITWM) of Kaiserslautern.

In Germany, strong interaction between Mathematics and Industry takes place in the Fraunhofer institutes in Kaiserslautern and Goeteborg, as well as in the Research center Matheon in Berlin (in particular their two partners Zuse Institute and Weierstrass Institute).

In Sweden, the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Research Center for Industrial Mathematics in Göteborg and the
CIAM (Center for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) at the KTH (Stockholm).

In France, the INRIA and several university departments have a lot of industry related activities, like the MIP in Toulouse, the J.-L. Lions lab in Paris VI, the IMB in Bordeaux, etc. Also, there are strong links between university labs and the research centers of big industries or organisms like EDF, CEA, ONERA, EADS, Michelin, IFP, etc. The ORAP group relates university research and industry people interested in big computational issues.

In the UK, the OCIAM, the Oxford Center for applied and industrial and applied Mathematics.

In the Netherlands, the Eurandom, whose mission is to foster research in the stochastic sciences and their applications.

In Portugal, the Mathematical Physics Group of the Lisbon University hosts a group of researchers involved in industrial activities.

In Spain, the CESGA Node, of the i-MATH Consolider project, which is a consortium between the universities of Coruña, Santiago de Compostela and Vigo and the Centro de Supercomputación de Galicia. The purpose of CESGA Node is the achievement of activities aimed at transferring mathematical knowledge to the productive sector, promoting the use of mathematical methods and techniques in industry and companies in general, the management of environmental issues, as well as research into areas of interest in technological development.
